A model of success. Logistics from the country. Strategy workshop for Eckhardt.

Logistics from the country. Strategic advice for Eckhardt. How can I give my company a strong position for the future in a competitive environment? In the face of hectic day-to-day business, brand and business development present many logistics service providers with great challenges. The freight company Eckhardt from Stuttgart has therefore asked HERZIG for support. During a workshop, we prioritised strategic options and developed a sharper brand profile. As a result, Eckhardt will increasingly position itself as a supraregional logistics company with the well-known Swabian virtues such as innovativeness, thoroughness and reliability. A concise and competitive slogan was created in order to communicate these characteristics, “Logistik ausm Ländle”, or in English “logistics from the country”. The new slogan forms the communicative “common thread” for all sales and image activities. This includes a revised web presence, online advertising, in-bound lead generation campaigns specially tailored to the target groups and targeted PR activities.

How the workshops work

This is the basis of HERZIG workshops’ success.

  2. Questionnaire for the preparation of the individual workshop
  3. Valuable basic competition analysis
  4. Working meeting, approx. one-day joint, interactive workshop
  5. Written overview of results and personal debriefing

Low price. That pays.

We know that marketing needs to pay off. That’s why we offer you our tried and tested advice and support at a very fair price.

In a brief, non-binding discussion, we would like to find out about your specific objectives and possible cross-country, cross-transport or cross-company tasks. Only then can we precisely calculate the budget for your individual workshop.  The workshop can take place at your premises (in-house) or at our premises in Cologne, whichever best suits you and your employees. We would be happy to consult with you!

Operates sustainably – That’s what our clients say

“Extremely constructive and invigorating.”

“With its particular industry focus and experience, HERZIG was able to develop an authentic and, in particular, sustainably implementable solution for us.”

“The workshop with HERZIG was a first step towards solving our special challenges and has paved the way to a concrete solution. The insights gained were very helpful, so we are considering a follow-up event. And working together was fun, too.”

“The workshop was highly structured and well prepared. Above all, and I found this very important, it was tailored to our needs and future plans. Especially in the marketing field, one often hears lectures that are held in a relatively general way and from which everyone has to pick out the points that are somehow relevant to them. At your WorkShop there was a clear common thread through which the different tasks and questions were dealt with.”

“The workshop was presented in such a way that it was fun to take part. We really got a lot out of it.”

“Thank you very much for the summary of the workshop as well, we’re very happy to have worked with you, it was very useful”.

“Herzig did a really good workshop and it was a pleasure to work with you. Pragmatic, inspiring and without any marketing blah-blah.”

“I would recommend this strategy workshop any time… but not to my competition!”
